COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A bounced check for a pizza could cost a Colorado man a lot of dough.

Russell Tellup gave a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver a $20 check for a pizza and the check bounced.

Tellup says he never got a letter that said he owed forty dollars: $20 for the pizza, plus $20 more.

Tellup says he received a summons in the mail a few days ago. The company that owns the store that delivered the pizza said it wanted $743.85 to cover court costs and attorney fees.

Company attorney Herman Lohse said there has to be a penalty for failure to pay.

Tellup has the option of settling out of court for $600. He said that is what he plans to do.
